I’m in a foreign land waiting for my father, with whom I have a very troubled relationship, to pass on. Thanks for this song which has given voice to my thoughts and brought me a bit of solace in these troubled times.
AldA on September 10, 2010 at 10:52 pm
It’s a great song! Grear job! 😉
jaypeetwigs on September 10, 2010 at 5:49 pm
The eclecticism is off the charts right now.
ammya on September 10, 2010 at 1:14 pm
OMG ist nice the song!!
sasamarissa on September 10, 2010 at 7:13 am
I loved this song! I’ve been a fan for 8 years and I think the reason I still love them so much is ‘coz the diversity of the band and its members. You never know exactly what to expect and the music always brings you new aspects and thoughts. I’ve grown up listening to LP and it’s been a great journey!
vetlee on September 9, 2010 at 3:48 am
Lol, what have you been smoking? =P Nice song, but it wasn’t what I expected at all 😀
mnklp on September 8, 2010 at 3:30 pm
Wow en realidad me encanto
estoy ansiosa por tener ATS
thegluelpfan on September 8, 2010 at 1:33 pm
It’s such a beautiful song…it isn’t what I expected it to be but it’s definitely a great surprise :)Thank you for the lyrics!

cincybmxlpfreak on September 8, 2010 at 7:20 am
Wow. Another beautiful song. I so cannot wait for this album. 😀
Julian on September 8, 2010 at 7:19 am
I don’t live in the US, but do have a good show, awaiting for the ASIAN TOUR!
Best Wishes, you guys deserve it!
jagta on September 8, 2010 at 5:25 am
Great! That was amazing. Love it. Did all of you sung in this song?
zzaacc on September 8, 2010 at 2:05 am
pretty good song. Reminded me a little of Gorillaz for some reason lol
I’m really not happy about the leak. To be honest, I wouldn’t really care if it was anyone else, I would probably be excited, but linkin park has been a huge part of my life and has made the not so good moments of my life when I was young, just that much better it became bareable. I will deffinately be buying the album tho regardless.
ANYWAY loving what I’m hearing so far, good job 😀 altho, I think I wouldv preferred Blackout being stripped back with minimum effects. But that’s just me.
AGATHE on September 8, 2010 at 1:30 am
This song is pretty good !!! Congratulations !!
I can’t wait to be monday and put my CD in my Hi-Fi, it’s a good thing to live in France ah ah ah !!
I was 13 years ago when I discovered LP, now I will be 20 years in some weeks, and I’m always proud of your band !
Thanks so much for this little piece of joy in my life 😉
linkinpark4e on September 8, 2010 at 1:29 am
This song is AWESOME!!!! it’s 1 of my favorite lp song ever!!!! thank you!!!!
mercenary18 on September 8, 2010 at 12:51 am
Dang..the whole ATS cd is leaked…i dont get how that even happens…so far this is my favorite song =D all are sounding amazing but im really attached to this one…i cant for cd release and this sunday VMA performance, I’m so going!!! =D gonna be the best weekend EVER!!! please play more than one song…plz plz plz ^^
lpdtfan on September 7, 2010 at 11:03 pm
Too bad people don’t understand that music need not be heavy to be good. Most of them are like “dis iz nt lp. give me nu metal”. I’m loving all the three songs that have been released so far. A week to go. Can’t wait.
nlopezdearenosa on September 7, 2010 at 10:24 pm
Mike, just got home safely from the ATS Light Exhibition show; it was just great. I don’t know the titles yet, but one in particular brought me to tears. When everyone was singing your part in “The Catalyst,” it moved me, too. The drums- oh, the drums… I wanted to ask Rob what brought out such intensity from him. Chester sang and yelled and nearly rapped perfectly. YOUR voice, just great. I know you do the original demos and back-up, etc; but to specifically hear you, for you to have your own time… just pure music to our souls.
Thank you for your dedication, Mike. You guys are funny, handsome smiles, great laughter. Thanks for your hard work. It was a great night. See you Sunday.
brattonw on September 7, 2010 at 10:14 pm
So far I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve heard of your new album. It has several things in it that I love about Linkin Park in particular: the vocal trade off between you and Chester, sweet beats that get my head boppin, and lyrics that are intelligent and evocative. Usually when I hear LP, I think of dark, angsty urban beats, which is exactly why I love you guys.
That said, Waiting for the End was wonderfully refreshing! The major key and unusual (is reggae the right word?) feel to the chorus had me hooked right from the first beat. I’m really excited about ATS!
Looking forward to the VMA show, I’ve never seen you guys live before, so I’m pretty psyched!
whosmurry on September 7, 2010 at 9:45 pm
Holy crap. You’ve got yourself a hit there, my friend.
slowlearner32 on September 7, 2010 at 8:46 pm
Amazing song! This song is my favorite song in ATS.
nanypark on September 7, 2010 at 8:15 pm
my dear mike! love of my life! I love U! please tell chester he’s the reason of my life! tell rob I want to be his girlfriend!I love the way he plays the drums!(We have a lot in common!! like Deftones) you game a goal in my life- to go see U live in concert!you’re all very talented people and used to have a band with a unique style, but now.. you’re good producers of rock-pop music! grose! my goal is no longer to go to a concert but to live waiting for someday hear REAL MUSIC like you did before! I LOVE YOU GUYS! Give me back my life! 😦 don’t dissapoint me anymore… here’s a proposal- work in two different styles: make a newmetal album and a pop album so everybody can be happy
abbykulyde on September 7, 2010 at 7:54 pm
I’m so loving this song… especially with what me and my family is going through right now.. this is an inspiration for us to move on.. thank you guys… ♥
melbapinckney on September 7, 2010 at 7:41 pm
A nice song. Chester’s superb singing and Mike’s super mad cool rapping, as always. I like it. Thank you for the song and lyrics, Mike.
EpicLinkinPark on September 7, 2010 at 6:39 pm
I think the beat and lyrics are awesome! I have loved The Catalyst, Wretches and Kings and now Waiting For the End. I know this album is going to be so epic. I can’t wait for September 14th! Hope all is well with you and the rest of LP. Oh I also found this a couple days ago and thought I share with you. I meant to add this to your hip-hop post. I don’t know if you heard of this guy, but thought I share this video.I thought of you when I saw this. I think you should do a rap like this LOL.
soxgurl46 on September 7, 2010 at 6:11 pm
That was beautiful, it was really nice, and deep. I loved it, that being said, I still prefer some of you guys’ heavier and more hard core songs, like Given Up- thats my favorite. Still waiting for that screaming you mentioned, Mike. I’m too exited for this album!
boger7lp on September 7, 2010 at 5:13 pm
It sound a bit like Coldplay
should look for other not so modern musical influences and not give not more prominence to the lyrics while the instruments that have done everithing backwards and look for the maturity
anyway i like it more when there was a balance between the electrical and instrument sounds to me that Linkin Park
Is hopefully more mature as musicians would be great
darkwai on September 7, 2010 at 4:13 pm
Wow! Are you really gonna grant me three wishes?
thaguy16 on September 7, 2010 at 3:00 pm
eh. prefer the catalyst by far. wretches is good too. this im just not feeling it yet. but itll grow on me
lucidofelice on September 7, 2010 at 2:13 pm
I heard that ATS leaked. Whatever, I pre-ordered it, and I want to see the art and the documentary ^_^
And this song is amazing! You guys really put your hearts and souls into this. Thank you =]
lplovei on September 7, 2010 at 1:23 pm
Good song! Not great or awesome like The Catalyst and Wretches and Kings. I do love the lyrics though, really deep. It’s amazing how you guys could make a song like Wretches and Kings then Waiting For The End and put them in the same album together. Some guy on FB yesterday said it was coming out today?? I didn’t believe him. Then it gets leaked today, uhhum, coincidence. I agree with CYKUCKI real fans’ll wait for the official date that you guys announced.
jozzie8 on September 7, 2010 at 1:22 pm
Hey Mike you guys are the best. We have been lucky enough to hear a new song from the album everyday on the radio. I heard Waiting For The End yesterday, but it was a different song to this one, it had lyrics that went something like “I’m losing what I don’t deserve.”
lode1989 on September 7, 2010 at 1:16 pm
Yeaah! This track is awesome!! I wanna marrie it!!
mantis18 on September 7, 2010 at 12:59 pm
Good song and Everything but I really hope you guys don’t try passing this off as Rock music. Rock music is Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, Underoath, Metallica.If your new album isn’t Alternative I’m gonna be pissed.
luki9875 on September 7, 2010 at 12:49 pm
enjoy the party mike… i am going to a listening party in dublin on thursday so i am SUPER EXCITED. I am more excited then all excited fans put together 🙂
linkinparkforever275 on September 7, 2010 at 12:35 pm
Thanks mike! Have fun tonight!
lpfan91 on September 7, 2010 at 12:26 pm
GUYS I FOUND THIS ON YOUTUBE!!!!
30 sec clips of each song!!!!!
ENJOYY. this album is going to have so much variety!!!!
jec23 on September 7, 2010 at 12:19 pm
Mike you do realize that the whole album has been leaked right?
rubenbosch92 on September 7, 2010 at 12:18 pm
This is the best quality I could find :p
Awesome song. But Mike?! How could this happen?!?!
horrorkidz on September 7, 2010 at 11:45 am
UM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLiA9rQ1-Qc THIS IS THE SONG OF BLACKOUT?! IS THIS LEAKED?! IS THIS THE OFFICIAL VERSION?!
keineahnung84 on September 7, 2010 at 11:14 am
How could you!?!? I’m trying to resist the urge to listen to that song and now you post a video with lyrics!? DAMN!! I want to listen to the album from the beginning to the end for the FIRST TIME on friday, but I already made an exception for wretches and kings, which is an awesome song btw.
anyway, make sure to post some pictures of the listening party 🙂
maraina15 on September 7, 2010 at 11:02 am
I soooooooo love it!!! U rock guys!!! \m/
ellzworth on September 7, 2010 at 10:52 am
Oh man. NOW i’m super excited about this album… I mean, Catalyst and Wretches And Kings are great… BUT this track… oh man! Splurging all over the place with this.
Shinoda finds his Rasta Reggae side 🙂
azri27 on September 7, 2010 at 10:51 am
Gotta love the whole feel of the song. It’s like “The world’s gonna end, so let’s make it a good one” No panic, no hysteria, just acceptance
rockermeg on September 7, 2010 at 10:31 am
Oh wow. I mean WOW xD
The off-beat is really really good.
It’s also up beat despite the subject.
Both vocals parts are really really good, in different ways 🙂
African influence? I’m studying music and we study African drumming and it just reminded me of that xx
hulasusieq on September 7, 2010 at 10:29 am
I get a reggage”irie”vibe to it from the insane beats & flow! I love it Mike! 🙂 To sum it up, I got 4 words to describe what I’m feeling by listening to this song. It’s “my heart is full”!
Have fun tonight firin’ your lazers, wish I was there!
milasouza11 on September 7, 2010 at 10:27 am
yeaaah, there’s more one new song!!
Chester’s voice is smooth, sweet in this song! i liked it!
i can’t wait anymore to find you here BRAZIL!! October 11 — SWU
sagback on September 7, 2010 at 10:16 am
IF I had fallen into a lost Island …I definetely would have taken the song…. waiting for own end 😀 HAve I ever told you are HEROSSSS ? 😉 :*
lpuntiltheblood on September 7, 2010 at 10:11 am
heeeeey mike!! You never disappoint me linkin park is the best band ever Waiting For The End!¡¡ i love the three new songs The Catalyst, Wretches And Kings and Waiting for the end i cant wait till september 14th to listen a thousand suns!!
rumikimoku on September 7, 2010 at 10:07 am
This is so amazing. It’s filling my mind and maybe soul with so much emotions and thoughts. It sounds so much…I don’t know…it sounds so much! The lyrics is great, it’s really great. When I was listening there was so much information that I, don’t know, received maybe. Aah, doesn’t matter. One word – Great.
And oh, the video is really really good, it fits so much to this song.
squide on September 7, 2010 at 9:58 am
A Thousand Suns – You guys my autumn amazing..I thought it’s gonna be another depression, but no, it’s a huge huge wave of awesome feelings and emotions. Thank you for all the work you’ve done..I’m gonna buy a license copy of the album whe it’ll aper at the stores..
Thanks once again. and sorry..
luprunesti on September 7, 2010 at 9:53 am
Wooow!! Love it!! I’m surprised and I totally adore this song! The sound is like “Beatles 2010”, maybe I’m crazy, but it has something that reminds me to the fab four… and I reaaaaaaaly like it!!!!! 😀
cykucki on September 7, 2010 at 9:45 am
If you downloaded it = you DON’T respect group.
Aditya_the_warrior_within on September 7, 2010 at 9:44 am
i even e-mailed you mike hope you read and respond
Alexandra Nofi on September 7, 2010 at 9:43 am
Sounds like you are really proud of this one. You should be.
These lyrics are the reason why I listen to Linkin Park. Gives me something to relate to, but not in a general way, either. It’s rare when two people on the opposite ends of a country can actually have the same sorts of feelings in almost the exact same way.
When you said you wanted to bring some humanity into the lyrics, you weren’t kidding! *huggles* Thank you very much :’)
awkwardjewswag on September 7, 2010 at 9:43 am
Awesome man, Im lovin the album so far. You can really hear the influence of other great bands (sublime, beatles), while still sounding like the next epic step for LP. Have you seen my video yet? Its 1 of my less serious ones but its got links to my other stuff in the description if u got time
rikardolp on September 7, 2010 at 9:36 am
i like it, but…
MonkeyChevalier on September 7, 2010 at 9:23 am
This is what i’m waiting for!
😀 Thank you soooo much, Mike! 😀 😀 😀
christinamsg on September 7, 2010 at 9:22 am
This was.. unexpected. In a good way. A very, very good way. Very interesting to see where you go with your music, but no matter what I’ll always have your backs. I love that you’re not afraid to go your own way, and not go the way people expect you to, so thanks guys, and keep up the good work!
nikkiann0100 on September 7, 2010 at 9:21 am
very beautiful song. I love it. Cant wait for the album to come out.
angelsrc79 on September 7, 2010 at 9:19 am
I’m still processing the song. I’ll tell you what I’ve been saying, though. If the album holds consistent with everything I’ve heard so far, it could easily take the top spot as my favorite LP album. See you guys there tonight!
theyactuallymakemylifebetter on September 7, 2010 at 9:17 am
I loved this song, it’s very cool. And the lyrics are reaaly great, powerfull, awesome. Good job guys. Good luck for tonight, I hope you post photos or something so we can see how it was =)
imacce on September 7, 2010 at 9:15 am
Hey Mike, I dont understand how YOUR album could be leaked everytime 1-3 day before release?? Whats wrong with the people to do this and the best question is, HOW is this possible!? I dont understand that…
fatimalp on September 7, 2010 at 9:07 am
I loooove this song!! Thanks so much! Have a great day & good luck tonight! 😀
linkinparktjejen on September 7, 2010 at 9:07 am
I LOVE YOU GUYS!
evooba on September 7, 2010 at 9:00 am
The song is really deep and meaningful; at least for me. Seriously I loved it! It has amazing lyrics that kinda like represent/describe (can’t really explain it) who I am. Overall the song is awesome! I can’t wait to hear it live! 😀
Good luck for tonight. I’m sure it’s gonna be a blast ^^
iajacky2yanto on September 7, 2010 at 9:00 am
wow, this is very unique.I like the melody and the meaning brought by the song 😀
anaphx on September 7, 2010 at 9:00 am
thanks! and kudos to the guys who made it!
btw: ATS leaked 😦
